The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, and you type the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the right location. Commonly a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts when you have a lot of domain addresses you want to direct to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We also allow you to set up private name servers for each Internet domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domains in the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
